Calf Found Chained to Wall Now Living His Best Life After Being Rescued


The North Haven nonprofit rescued him when he was just two days old. Megan Pereira, the sanctuary’s founder, said they rescued him from terrible conditions.

“He was chained to a wall in his own filth,” she told News 8. “He’s thought to be blind in one eye, but the vets aren’t 100% sure yet.”


Watch: He's so stinkin' cute!

Megan Pereira, the sanctuary’s founder, said they rescued him from terrible conditions.

Those interested in making donations to the nonprofit can do so on its GoFundMe page.


“He started to have what’s called ‘failure of passive transfer,’ meaning he didn’t get enough antibodies from his mama to be able to support a healthy immune system. Because of that, he became ill, and we treated him supportively as best as we could.”


“We thought he started to go septic due to an underlying respiratory infection because of the lack of antibodies. They treated him with antibiotics, lots of love supportive care, and he slowly just started to improve. About a week after that, he broke with terrible diarrhea and started to become extremely dehydrated, and again, we were nervous about his survival. We treated with a different course of antibiotics and supportive care, electrolytes fluids, and so far he has not looked back!”
